Center for Social Concern
While we continue to follow university COVID-19 guidelines, staff are evaluating and exploring our efforts and programming for our community. We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we navigate this uncertainty together.
Although the semester may be virtual, we want you to know that we are still striving to ensure every student is actively engaged and part of the JHU community, no matter what community you are calling home right now.
As part of our commitment to civic engagement through education, action, and reflection, the Center for Social Concern invites you to be part of our fall campaign, JHUTakeAction. Take the pledge to engage in your community and demonstrate civic leadership.
